In the pages of the recently released "Green Lantern Annual" #1 fans were teased with the reveal of an imprisoned new Lantern called The First Lantern...well he's the FIRST maybe he's not new new...but ya know.
The introduction of this mysterious and obviously pivotal character will kick off the upcoming "Rise of the Third Army" crossover event that'll rumble the pages of DC's "Lantern" books; "Green Lantern, "Green Lantern Corps," "Green Lantern: New Guardians" and "Red Lanterns." Said writer Geoff Johns on the matter:
Who the First Lantern is and what his role will be in the upcoming Green Lantern universe will come into play very, very quickly... Whether he's friend or foe will be up for debate, but regardless he is one of the potentially most dangerous beings in existence.
In his review of "Green Lantern Annual" #1, our blogger Alex Zalben said:
...this issue is probably the most important annual hitting this week to the overall fabric of the DC Universe.
Adding that it...
...folds in even more wrinkles into Johns’ already expansive GL mythology...
We'll have to see how this plays out. What do you guys think?
